  • Very calm and peaceful pagoda in down south Sri Lanka. More quite and tidy place than others. Best for Meditation. This pagoda was built by Japan Government for build up Sri Lanka - Japan friendship. Nice Sunset can be seen from here every evening. Vehicle parking space is available and make sure to keep the place quietly and tidy when visit.
  • This place located in Rumasala/Jungle beach which you can do a small hike or you can go by vehicle. Best time to visit evening. It has 360 view point and anyone can enjoy the sunset there. Make sure your clothes covers till knee as this place is a Buddhist religious temple.
